A handful of petitioners against the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex tried once more to put a stop to the construction of the building near Ashley Pond at Tuesday’s County Council meeting.
A handful of residents attended the meeting in hopes that they could convince councilors to halt the project and as before, council listened to their grievances and voted to proceed with construction.
In a directly related matter, Council voted to accept Guaranteed Maximum Price No. 2 in the amount of $15,011,650 and approve the 100 percent design drawings.
Min Park, a local business owner who spearheaded the first petition brought to Council last week, attended last night’s meeting to present the second petition that he and other residents signed.
“Thank you for accepting our petition tonight,” Park said. “You expressed our strong desire not to stop the project. The second petition is asking you not to grant the $15 million.”
Park went on to address the three points that he covered during the last meeting, which were size, location and cost associated with the JPJ Complex. He restated his opinion on the complex costing too much and it being too large for its intended uses.
